Oberstar likely to play role at Humphrey Institute

“It’s definitely not a full-time thing. It’s not like he’s coming in as a professor, but he’s very interested in some role. He has this rich history in transportation and we wanted to tap into that.”

— Lee Munnich, director of the Humphrey Institute’s State and Local Policy Program at the University of Minnesota, explaining how outgoing U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar might work at the institute as a visiting scholar, lecturer or author when he’s out of office Jan. 3.
